Lucas Paqueta, who once attracted Manchester City’s attention, has been charged with violating betting rules.

The English Football Association (FA) announced on the 24th (Korea Standard Time) that “West Ham Parketa has been charged with cheating in connection with allegations of violating FA regulations E5 and F3.”

Paqueta is accused of violating four FA rules regarding his actions against Leicester City on 12 November 2022 (local time), Aston Villa on 12 March 2023, Leeds United on 21 May 2023 and Bournemouth on 12 August 2023.

All four charges the FA are alleging involve yellow cards. Paqueta clashed with Boubacar Soumure in a match against Leicester City. John McGinn was tackled in the match against Aston Villa.

Then, against Leeds United, he pulled Chrissencio Somerville. Against Bournemouth, he committed a handball foul. Paqueta received a yellow card for this four times. The FA determined that his foul was intentional.

The FA explained, “Parketa deliberately tried to get a card from the referee for an unfair purpose that would affect the betting market. He is accused of trying to profit from betting by directly affecting the progress of the game and other aspects.”

Paqueta has denied the allegations altogether. On his social media account, he said, “I am very surprised and angry that the FA has decided to indict me. For the past nine months, I have cooperated with all investigations and provided all the information I can. I will fight to clear my injustice.”

West Ham also said, “Parketa categorically denies the violation. We will continue to defend our position strongly. The club will continue to support and support the player throughout the entire process.”

Paqueta is a Brazilian midfielder. He has great skills and plenty of activities, which greatly influences his team. He joined West Ham in the 2022-23 season after playing for Flamengo, AC Milan and Olympique Lyonnais.토토사이트 순위

He showed good performance from the first season. He scored eight goals and seven assists in 43 matches, which contributed greatly to West Ham’s victory in the UEFA Europa Conference League. He was named in the squad for the season after the season ended.

Manchester City was interested in the run-up to this season. There were reports of specific transfer fees, but at the same time, Packett’s alleged violation of bets came to mind. Naturally, there was no transfer to Manchester City. According to local reports, if Packett’s allegations turn out to be true, there is a high possibility that he will be banned from participating.
